the government faces trillion of dollars in debt. the left may be cute with a call to end funding for public broadcasting, but here's the homework the left should have done before they and president obama began their reflective aattacks. they are $388 million in assets now. in merchandise sales alone, it brought in $45 million, five times what it received in government grants. that little cute sesame workshop turns out to be a moneymaker producing hundreds of millions of dollars. we take all of that up tonight with former george bush senior adviser carl rove, and as well, the unemployment rate falling to 7.8%, employers adding just 114,000 jobs. we're talking about that, and, yes, big bird too with the congressional budget office with douglas holtz-eakin. any -- new reports two suspects were arrested in the assassination to the ambassador to libya and three other americans. the man who broke the story that the obama administration knew it was a well-planned terrorist attack within 24 hours. daily beast writer, eli lake, joins us. governor romney campaigning today in virginia and florida ridi
to be the federal government is the message to california. they need to pull back from their own regulations. i do think that we have this opportunity that it all fits under a growth leg. i think we would say -- and governor kasich is looking at this and governor davis is working on it, so you take the energy issue and say now i can fix some of the infrastructure needs that have been piling up. if we start doing that, we will be short on labor in this country. we will need to retrain the people who are not trained or skilled. the potential is enormous if there's any vision and any leadership. >> we will take questions in a moment. first i want to ask about the front page of the new york times, campaign finance and the super pacs going into the congressional races, a small super pacs. all of you, presumably, involved in congressional races. >> no, we are switzerland. >> what is the role for business in government and in election campaigns? >> there is a major effort that's been going on for some time in various ways to force business to back away from participating in both the election process and

holder today praised the libyan government's response. it's a challenging environment in which to operate but i think we have done pretty well given the circumstances in which we find ourselves and we found ourselves able to move about and do the things that we have wanted to do because of the assistance we've gotten from the libyan government as well as from some of our other allies >> sreenivasan: a u.s. house committee holds a hearing tomorrow on the consulate attack. in pakistan, a taliban gunman shot and wounded a 14-year-old activist known for promoting girls' education. malala yousufzai was hit in the head and neck during the attack in the swat valley region. doctors said the wounds were not life-threatening. yousufzai spoke out on girls' education at a u.n. children's assembly last year. the taliban called her work "an obscenity" in a statement claiming responsibility for the attack. one out of every eight people on earth is going hungry, according to a u.n. report today. that comes to 870 million people, but it's far below the figure of one billion announced in 2009. the u.n. foo
wood told the house of representatives oversight and government reform committee, get this, the consulate in benghazi never had the forces it needed to protect itself. never. >> the security in benghazi was a struggle and remained a struggle through my time there. the situation remained uncertain and reports from some libyans indicated it was getting worse. diplomat security remains weak. in april there was only one u.s. diplomatic security agent stationed there. they struggled to obtain additional personnel but was never able to attain the numbers he felt comfortable with. >>shepard: a former state department regional security officer in libya testified, as well. here is what he said, that the united states could not count on lib jab security forces to help with security adequately. >> the libyan temporary government was unable to extend security assets to diplomatic missions in the ways we are expecting to see around the world. we could not rely on the libyan government for security, intelligence, and law enforcement help to identify emerging threats or to ask them for as

on them by the government. >> he estimates the fact that as governor in eliminated the estate tax and took more than 100,000 low income virginians of the income tax rolls. i just thought i would correct him there. george and i have very different strategies. this is one of the most important programs that has ever been done by the government. more than 50% of american seniors have retired into poverty before it was passed. thank you we have -- thank god we have those days behind us. that would've been a huge catastrophe prior to the collapse in washington. what i would do is allow the payroll tax of words as a way of protecting the solvency of the program. on medicare, george allen supports the ryan budget that would turn medicare into a voucher program and push costs onto the seniors. i propose a senior savings costs, for example ending the prescription -- that we get. that would save us without jeopardize in the benefit of all. >> mr. allen, to ask both of you to take one minute to respond to tim kaine's assocation about medicare and to support the ryan budget? >> what i support is prese
to suggest that the government didn't know what it was doing and could have saved the lives of those men? >> well, ashleigh, it depends who you ask. if you ask democrats, it's the former. this is a political stunt to damage president obama just weeks before the election. but the republican chair of the committee, daniel issa, is saying listen, something went wrong, we need to get to the bottom of this. and indeed you're going to hear today from senior security officials that were posted in benghazi in months leading up to the attack, not on the day of the attack, posted in libya that say, look, we did send messages to the state department asking for additional secity, asking for security teams that were on the ground to be extended beyond their mandate over the summer. and so these requests were apparently either denied or not responded to. and so you'll hear from these security officials, and you'll hear from charlene lamb, a deputy assistant secretary who a lot of these requests went to. and i think a lot of people are wondering why she didn't respond to them, why, perhaps, she denied
to ensure that yes come the government is very much pro-life and that it would support legislation that would restrict abortion. this has all open up a bunch of new questions, some of which make them up at tonighttomorrow night's presidential debate and could come up in the second one. we are following this and we will see where it goes. jenna: it might be interesting if it comes up in the townhall today. we will be watching for that as well. reporter: it could be, maybe someone will bring up. we appreciated it always. you never know really what questions will be asked and it really does show the priority of voters in what questions and issues they want the candidates to address. jon: also interesting to hear what chris christie might say. we are continuing to monitor the next presidential debate. my next guest says that the president's performance in denver forced a major strategy change for the obama party. charlie gasparino joins us live. you are talking about the four letter word liar, right? reporter: everyone across the spectrum, even msnbc determined that barack obama had cl
years, we have had revenues coming into the federal government at a level around 15% of gdp. that is a 60-year low. since 1960, we have never had a balanced budget in a year when revenues were less than 18% of gdp. in 2001, the last year we had a surplus, revenues were at 19.5% of gdp. we have a revenue problem. we need tax reform to solve it. some on the left have suggested corporate tax reform could be a source for new revenue but here i disagree. to preserve our international competitiveness, it is imperative we seek to reduce the corporate rate from 35% and do it on a revenue-neutral basis. this will boost growth and encourage more companies to reinvest in the united states. corporate tax reform, under the leadership of chairman baucus senator hatch should be treated separately from our attempt to get a handle on the deficit. but when it comes to the individual side of the code, our approach must be different. in this part of reform, the new money we collect from broadening the tax base cannot all be applied to prepare -- to reducing rates or else we will not get enough

? is there a point where the federal government seizes control of the project? dr. ruiz? >> thank you for bringing this up, because it really brings very pleasant memories of my father taking me there to fish and havin picnics with the family. now we're seeing dead fish and a stink that is unbearable. and this is somewhere where congresswoman has failed to deliver. she continues to talk a big game. she promised in her first election that she would fix the sea. 14 years later it has not been fixed. i don't know what stippings more, a broken promise or the sultan sea. in fact, this is a great opportunity right now for us to revive that sultan sea so that we can have it as a hot spot for tourism, so that other children can fish with their fairs, so we can develop geothermal energy and boost our economy. and the way we're going to go about doing it is public/private partnerships with local input and authority so that we can come together and stop this bickering and attack talk and all this other stuff that congresswoman bono mack is so adept at and skilled, but really come up with some problem-solving
convention performance odd ball, unquote. she also wrote a very pro-pbs piece, but failed to cite government subsidies to that network. the former chairman of the board of the associated press, william dean singleton, last april introduced president obama at the annual a.p. lunch onby saying, quote, the president inherited the head winds of the worst economic recession since the great depression. he pushed through congress the biggest economic recovery plan in history, and on and on and on. a glowing introduction. now the a.p. is one of the largest news wire services in the world. and it's biased against mitt romney. i think that's true, beyond a reasonable doubt. local newspapers all over the usa carry a.p. photos and articles every day. that's a huge advantage for president obama. and perhaps the best example of what the national media has become in america. the obama campaign believes governor romney made a big mistake by saying he would stop federal money to pbs and npr. this morning, this ad was released. >> bernie madoff, dennis kozlowski, criminals, gluttons of greed. and the evil gen
objects to. there is no role for the government to be sort of people by race. >> the university of texas of austin's has what? guest: they say the supreme court has endorsed education and diversity as a compelling goal for the government and an exception to the usual rule that the government should not be classified people by race. it is true, and a 5-4 decision, the supreme court said that, but the key vote, sandra day o'connor, has retired, replaced by a more conservative judge, samuel alito, so in that they give us a new result. >> what is the result of this, who will hear it, who will decide? guest: only eight justices will decide. elena kagan is reduced from oregon and the case as a former u.s. solicitor general. it is a good bet the four more conservative justices, if not to strike an entirely, will limit the use of race. the three more liberal ones will go the other way. as usual, anthony kennedy will hold the deciding vote. on the one hand, he has said there have been some positive things about the importance of diversity. on the other hand, he has never voted to make sure that a

to the cyber threat requires the right policies and organizations across the federal government. for the past year, the department of defense has been working closely with other agencies to understand where are the lines of responsibility when it comes to cyber defense? where do we draw those lines? how do those responsibilities get executed? as part of that effort, the department is now finalizing the most comprehensive change to our rules of engagement in cyberspace in seven years. the new rules will make clear that the department has a responsibility not only to be thin d.o.d.'s networks -- to networks, but to defend the nation and our natural -- national interests in cyberspace. these new rules makes the department more agile and provides us with the ability to confront major threats quickly. to execute these responsibilities, we must have strong organizational structures in place. three years ago, the department took a major step forward by establishing the united states cyber command. under the leadership of a four start officer who also served as the director of the national security a

that ensued. i'm not the first person to question the government numbers and hopefully i won't be the last. and he references someone who's criticized him a lot, which is rich austin golsby, our guest friday morning after the jobs report. jack mentioned a op ed in "the new york times" back in 2003, and in that piece, goolsbee spells it out. in other words, the government has cooked the books. when people serve manager the military were classified from not in the labor force to employed in order to reduce the unemployment rate. nonetheless, the impact has been the same. he was making the point that there was a jobless recovery that came later because they had notless the unemployment rate rise to the level where it would have been normally. and jack is going to join us at 8:00 eastern. the people that we've had have talked about jack have just pointed out, look, it's at 7.8 for whatever reason. you've got part-time workers. all these census workers call people and find out whether they're working. if you've done anything in the last month, you could theoretically call them part-time. >> if
and whether they matter. first, the world section of usa today, testimony before the house government and oversight committee -- recovered yesterday's hearing. if your interested in watching, go to our web site c-span.org to get more. in the "washington times" this morning -- these e-mails were obtained by the washington times. and an update on a story we told you about yesterday, a high court hearing oral arguments about the affirmative action case. the university of texas at austin being challenged by abigail fisher about how they admit their students. this is what richard wolfe and mary beth write -- if you are interested in the audio of the oral arguments, it will be released by the court on friday after 1:00 p.m. c-span.org to find out when we will be airing that on friday. jimmy is an independent scholar. where are you from? caller: north carolina. host: what do you think about the vice-presidential debate? caller: well, i think the vice presidential debate matters. the politics have become like a consumer item in how we package the product and substance does not really matter.
is to use the phrase that mitt romney use the in the debate last week, trickle down government. they're trying to discredit something they called trickle down government. it's up to joe biden tonight to begin to rebuild and to remind people that government is a cooperative exercise. people voted for social security, they voted for medicare, they voted for the people who built the modern state that we have. that's a big technical order and i think biden will be up to it. ryan has a much easier task in many ways. he can stand there and point to every negative economic statistic that's still out there, and there are plenty of them, and just repeat them over and over and over again. he's got a much easier strategic menu than joe biden does. biden's got to do a million things at once which is, frankly, not very easy. >> howard once back in the '80s robert downey jr. was on "saturday night live" doing a sketch playing a movie critic, i'll never forget, i saw this movie, it changed my life. i saw it again and it changed it back. if this race is kind of like that to where the whole movie, th
as a government? do we want to do that in civil society? do we want to be taking a wway e medicare promise to people in any generation when you say to a person when they reach their 80s, go out, get on a bus and go find yourself an insurance company that's going to insure your health at this point. do we really want to do those kinds of things? and was it right to deal ideologically with the auto industry when we had to interrupt the normal processes of the market and do something extraordinary? romney said, no, let it happen. let them eat cake. obama said, no, i'm going to take this risk. he was right. the ideological issues are the very issues where i think what you can do tonight, it's a political term in philadelphia, you middle the guy. you take this guy, paul ryan, and middle him. force him to choose between his hard right ideology and positions he's taken over the years, stick to those positions or slink over to the romney positions that loosey-goosey thing in the position in the middle where he flips around and slips around so much he can't tell where he stands. will ryan be ryan t
economic agenda, spending, borrowing, higher taxes, a government takeover of health care, it is not working. millions of americans are struggling to work and 15% are in poverty. this is not what a real recovery looks like. you deserve better. we want to earn your support. we are offering real reforms for every american. mitt romney, his experience, ideas, and solutions are uniquely qualified to get this job done. at a time we have a jobs crisis, wouldn't it be nice to have a jobs creator in the white house? a stagnant economy that promotes more government dependency, or a dynamic that promotes opportunity and jobs. mitt romney and i will not duck the tough issues are blame others for the next four years. we will take responsibility and we will not try to replace our founding principles. we will reapply our founding principles. the choice is clear, and the choice rests with you. >> thank you both again. this concludes the vice- esidential debate. please tune in next tuesday for the second presidential debate in new york. i'm martha rattis of abc news. i hope all of you go to the polls. have
of this week, the tax cliff that comes off the spending, the taxes and the more government bureaucracy is exactly what the democrats are selling. this has caused a hiewmg impact on employment, we have a lack of jobs and the future that lies ahead is very bleak, economically. republicans offer a sound plan, not just to cut taxes but to get us back to work and our candidates differ with every single democrat on this issue, i think we will do just fine. >> shannon: we mentioned the key states where you are watching, ohio, california, massachusetts, can you give us insight maybe into the seats that are leaning one way or the other and you are dwoaing a lot of resources to make sure it falls into your column? >> did you mention, a race in massachusetts. one of the top republican challengers that we have against john teenager neboston. richard is doing a fabulous job. he has ethically challenged the american people, not only want and need honest members of congress, but i think we will win that seat. as you look across the country, republicans are on offense, all across the country, against
. i am currently unemployed. i worked for a company that works for the government. we have been told we would be losing our contract on january 27. they say the unemployment rate in oklahoma is pretty good and i hope so because i will be looking for a job in january. host: what type of work do you do? caller: we basically collect -- we make sure that insurance companies reimburse the government for accident claims. host: so it is health-related. caller: yes. host: now that you know your contract will not be renewed, tell us about what you are doing in the meantime. caller: i will sign up for some additional training at our local community college to improve my computer skills and hopefully find another government job. with the unemployment rate at 7.8% of which i believe is correct, i don't think i will have a problem. host: to many people work in your field? caller: i have worked in the field for the last 20 years with medicare processing. host: what about others you associate with? what does the work better look like for them? are there those unemployed and looking for work? what a
, of course he wants to hire more government workers. look, all of these things have not ignited our economy the way it should be ignited. we've seen the slowest recovery from a recession. bill: john roberts traveling with the campaign. live in vanmeter, iowa, that is west of des moines. what is happening there, john? >> reporter: good morning. governor romney will be talking agriculture today. not surprisingly we're on a 700 acre farm owned by the cook family. a lot of soybeans and corn here. we're in madison county. governor romney won this in the caucuses by the way. he will argue the president's policies things like estate taxes, climate change, environmental regulations, energy policy are hurting farmers. he continues to go after the president on issue of jobs of the even though the unemployment number is down below the psych lodge call level at 8% on the stump in newport news, governor romney found a new way to use it. >> if you look back 60 years, at all the months we had unemployment before 8% before president obama. there were 39 months. in all 60 years with unemployment above 8%. u
could argue, but the government spends 50 percent of the money. so 50 percent will not go down, but with asia is slower, but nothing mystical or different than you read about newspapers. the united states is fundamentally stronger than people think in my opinion. under the reasons for that. and latin america, good, bad, slow. obviously it is drawing down quite a bit. >> what about india clearly slowing, china clearly slowing. >> here is china. china is, again, an opinion. i think you're going to need to object to seven or 8 percent growth. it used to be a lot higher. they use that to employ a million people to avoid the social unrest. think you're going to need that because you're actually quite right. a change will be smoothed or continue the former policy of the government, but they have the wherewithal to do it. they have $3 trillion in reserves and a lot of capability to maintain growth. they move very quickly. so you may remember, the united states package sent to the crisis. it was like seven months into the crisis stated that month with chile. so they had the ability to
